Though we haven't quite even reached Halloween, Astrid nevertheless tried out MerrickⓇ Grain-Free Thanksgiving Day Dinner canned dog food.
We've mentioned in previous review posts how Astrid is one picky pup. Honestly, she's a pickier eater than any of cats in the house, and that is quite a feat. That being said, there is only one specific type of moist food that we have been able to get Astrid to eat consistently, without her getting tired of it. Now, though, that moist food has been discontinued. Needless to say, we've been on the hunt for a new type of moist food to feed her. We have tried literally dozens of canned dog food, and Astrid either refuses to eat it, or gets bored of it after a handful of feedings.
So, here we are trying yet another canned food for Astrid. This pup is much like her kitty housemates and prefers paté food. What's more, food that is not paté often causes this pup to heave up a nice new stain on the rug.
The MerrickⓇ Thanksgiving Day Dinner canned dog food is not paté, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Astrid has the most trouble keeping down canned food that consists of large, distinct, hardy chunks. In this case, though, I held onto hope, because this MerrickⓇ food is more like a stew, with softer chunks in a thick gravy.
What I really like about this food is that turkey and chicken are the first ingredients, and that it also contains a good dose of vegetables and fruit. Astrid refuses to eat anything deemed "healthy" in and of itself, so if she'll eat food containing quality nutrients, then I'm one happy mom. That's why I was glad that Astrid was interested in this food right off the bat.
Uh-oh. Someone else was interested, too.
Once I distracted Toby with his own goodies, I gave Astrid a taste of the MerrickⓇ Thanksgiving Day Dinner food. Though I failed to get photographic evidence, guess what? Astrid loves this stuff! Guess what else? She doesn't puke it up!
I didn't want to post this review until Astrid had proven to me that she would not get bored of this food. She has made it through roughly half of the 12-pack we received, having eaten it for two weeks straight now, and she still loves it. We have finally found at least one kind of food that can replace Astrid's previous favorite that has been discontinued. That has me praising this food just as much as it has Astrid scarfing it down.
